Worst meatloaf ever!!! This recipe produces a dry crumbly "loaf". Maybe if you like to eat your meattloaf with a spoon and enjoy extreme Parmesan flavor...I cannot fathom what made me actually follow a recipe all the while saying "This cannot be good. It is so dry." But I thought 4 reviews couldn't be wrong. Boy were they! Read More

Excellent I increased the italian seasoning and used panko bread crumbs. Served it with mashed potatoes mushroom gravy and green beans. Hubby was very happy! I'll save this recipe and do it again. Read More

I made a few changes based on other reviews. I decreased the bread crumbs in half, added 1/2 cup ketchup and added a ketchup/mustard/brown sugar glaze in top to keep it moist. It was delicious and my family loved it! Read More

I only made a little change on this recipe--I increased the italian seasoning considerably and I added a teaspoon each of onion and garlic powders. This turned out a dry crumbly loaf that I was unable to serve as actual meat loaf. You can imagine how disappointed I was. I turned a minus into a plus and made it into a quick meat sauce with a homemade marinara. For future reviewers if you want this to be a meat loaf you may want to add more liquid or cut back the dry ingredients at least by half. Read More
